In director Ido Fluk’s stunningly attractive moral tale, a blind man (Dan Stevens) mysteriously regains his sight and is instilled with a drive to improve life for himself and his family. As his unchecked ambition becomes an obsession, he slowly starts to leave his old life—his wife, his son, his friends—behind in favor of the things he’d never previously imagined he’d be able to have, risking everything he once held dear to achieve a lifestyle he feels he deserves.  

Since departing Downton Abbey to seemingly take over all film and television screens, lead Dan Stevens (Legion, The Guest, Beauty and the Beast) has taken on interesting roles, and The Ticket is another one with real meat on the bone. Though his subtly complex performance is a highlight, the movie’s real star is its gorgeous, risk-taking cinematography. Full of unobvious angles and beautiful lighting, The Ticket has a poetic, almost Malick-ian quality to it that makes it impossible to look away from, even as the movie’s plot follows a somewhat predictable path.

Author rating: 6.5/10
